BS Yeddyurappa swearing as Karnataka Chief Minister

Karnataka Power Battle Rahul Gandhi Talks To Deve Gowda Over Phone

The BJP may be celebrating its party President BS Yeddyurappa being sworn in as the new Chief Minister of Karnataka, but the political action is far from over.

The order came hours before the swearing-in ceremony in Bangalore, where Yeddyurappa, 75, is slated to become chief minister of the state for the second time, even as the Congress-JD (S) combine has been claiming a majority with support of 117 MLAs, against BJP's 104. It was also inexplicable that the news was initially broken by Karnataka BJP's official Twitter handle. "The petitioners are trying to stultify a democratic process", he added.

By hook or by crook?

The Congress MLAs, who were staying at former minister DK Sivakumar's Eagleton resort in Bengaluru, were earlier reported to be being moved to Crowne Plaza Hotel in Kochi. Under normal circumstances, the Speaker is first elected before the beginning of an Assembly session. However, the Governor invited BJP.

Congress and Janta Dal Secular party had attempt to stop the process by knocking at the door of supreme court at night yesterday. The Supreme Court said the matter would be taken up next on Friday morning.

Coming back to the pre-dawn proceedings, Singhvi also contested the governor's decision to give Yeddyurappa 15 days to prove his majority.

The bench observed that it was preposterous to argue that the legislators, before they take oath, were not amenable to anti-defection law and meant an open invitation to horse-trading.

Sandeep Shastri, a political analyst and vice-chancellor at Jain University, said the narrow win was a testament to the BJP's superior election machine, but also confirmed Modi's status as the most popular Indian politician in generations. He was administered the oath of office and secrecy by Governor Vajubhai Vala, who invited him to form the government on Wednesday. But it wasn't available for the court to inspect and the court realised that respondent BS Yeddyurappa wasn't represented in the court.

Anand Singh - Congress MLA from Vijayanagar constituency has the most number (16) of criminal cases, followed by B Nagendra (15) - Congress MLA from Bellary and S A Ravindranath (11) - BJP MLA from Davanagere North. "I'm really surprised to see how Yeddyurappa is behaving". Else I am in.

Advocate Mukul Rohatgi contended that the Governor can not be made answerable to the Court.
